It is a small wireless device using Bluetooth Low Energy technology (also known as Beacon Bluetooth 4.0). Users who have the Reader application will get notifications and access to e-books via smartphone when they pass through an area where there is a Beacon. The concept of service implementation is found in 4 components:

Beacon Technology
  • Users get access to e-books through their smart devices when they pass or enter the area where there is a Beacon by using the provided eReader application.
  • Users can access the content list up to 30 meters away from the location of the Beacon. Once the user exits the Beacon area, the user does not have access to this e-book but the downloaded material can still be accessed.
Beacon Geo-fencing Technology
  • Users only need to download information/books that are allowed access to the designated catalog through geo-fencing beacons.
